A Place In the Sun

Happy Friday Company Girls!

OMG, is it really January 2nd??!? What happened to New Years Day? Did anyone else miss it? Mercy.

Well I can see how my year is going to go now. lol! I do have a couple of posts in my blogger cache that will be posted later - one from xmas and another from New Year's Day. I just have to take the time to finish them.

So how is your 2009 so far? Here, let me pass the coffee. I still have some yummy Christmas cookies left over; Neiman Marcus cookies and Chocolate Gingerbread. They are still fresh and moist.

We had a pretty uneventful New Years - just Hubby and I and the kids. I made way too much food for two people. On the menu was boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce, cocktail sausages, sausage and cream cheese dip, bacon-wrapped cream cheese stuffed jalapenos, pigs in blankets, and a bunch of TGI Friday's stuff that never got opened because we were stuffed! The boys went to bed early - no fireworks for us since we are in a severe drought and they are banned everywhere. Of course, it didn't stop some people from making all the neighborhood dogs bark at midnight. ;)

I am determined this year to just do MORE. Much like Rachel Anne's resolution, I feel like I can take this living day to day thing up a notch. I have really been letting things slack in the past couple of years, and I am hoping to "tend to my crops" so to speak. My friendships need a little love and care as well as my house and my relationship with my husband and kids. I am tired of being tired, and I guess the only way to get out of my funk is to actually get out. and do something that is.

Anywho, how about you? What is on your plate for 2009? I look forward to hearing about what you have planned. :)

D :)

I think for me, it is spending more time on me. I mean really spend time on me--doing things that are hard but good for me. (EXercise for one). Hopefully I can get an honest start on it, then keep it going. Thanks for the cookies! These are my favs--the kind that don't add pounds.

Like you, I'm kicking it up a notch. I'm living 2009 as though it would be my last year (though not in a morbid way!). I want to use up stuff, create memories for my children, go the extra mile to make a difference in someone's life. I do NOT want to be like Rachel Anne and have a baby though. LOL I will just enjoy her pictures! Happy 2009!

bacon-wrapped cream cheese stuffed jalapenos...I'd love to have that recipe. My husband loves jalapenos!

My holiday was pretty uneventful as well, but I think I really prefer that. We seem to always be on the go. Maybe that can be a goal of mine...not to go so much!

BACON WRAPPED STUFFED JALAPENOS....! Please post the recipe for those - yum! I think one of my resolutions would be (if I had them:) to be a more creative cook. I am in such a rut. I was watching Everyday Food on PBS (no cable) and thought, now how EASY is that stuff??

I love your new photo of the family! Did you take it yourself? I can't imagine anyone else taking your photos. BTW, we'll talk more about our project...just on the back burner for now :)

OK, my man wants the bacon wrapped recipe, too! : )

After I put my daughter to bed, I was totally out, so it was pretty uneventful for us as well. I did hear some fireworks and the neighbors cheering, but that was about it. I can't believe it's 2009 already. Hope you have a blessed new year!

Thanks for visiting my blog tonight! I really have to work to do the gratitude list each week -- a teacher friend or two started the list making a few months ago and I've tried to keep it going each week since. Sometimes it's a reach but I know that there's a silver lining in everything that happens! This year....nothing planned -- hubby retired from the Air Force, one child graduated from college. I'm just waiting for my own classroom to have 24 kids to minister to each day!!
